    Dr. Hider Shaaban, PsyD

    I’m a Clinical Psychologist, the founder, and executive director of PCP, located in Philadelphia, PA.

    Therapy is a very unique space, and to be able to witness the vulnerability and the depth of conversation that are had in this space, is something I find very special and valuable, and it drives me to love this profession.

    My approach to psychotherapy is one that is quite flexible. I integrate different kinds of models and philosophies (psychodynamic, CBT, IFS, and ACT-based) in order to match your specific needs and personality style. I firmly believe that this way can leave more room to tailor the treatment in whatever way that feels relevant and helpful to you, and is not restricted by one particular model that must be adhered to.

    What is even more important than this, in my view, is building a strong therapeutic relationship between myself and the client. This is the only way to allow for a comfortable and a safe space that can be used to share deep conversations and to ultimately heal.

    Some of my main clinical interests are anxiety and trauma disorders, identity development, multicultural counseling, mindfulness-based meditation, and overall mental wellbeing & emotional awareness.  I’m also very interested in putting the spotlight on mental health and incorporating it in everyday life, which can be done through more awareness and education.

    If you’re struggling with some of these issues, then we can get you the help you need to reduce your symptoms, get better, and flourish.

    Dr. Jessica Henninger, PsyD

    I’m a clinical psychologist and the clinical director of PCP.  I specialize in integrative health, trauma, anxiety, and depression. Other concerns that I often work with include OCD, ADHD, bipolar disorder, sleep issues, grief, relationships issues, and life transitions. I work with people across the lifespan, including children, teens, and adults.

    I provide evidence-based interventions that integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Therapy with Response Prevention (EXRP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) based on the needs of each client.

    I believe that physical and mental health are incredibly intertwined, and this philosophy motivates me to take a proactive approach to wellness. Just as we understand the importance of routine health care, we should also prioritize and normalize caring for our psychological needs. Everyone gets stuck sometimes, and everyone can benefit from learning more about themselves. That is why I strive to empower clients to develop goals, identify potential barriers, and explore strategies to pursue what is most important to them in life.

    What I love most about my role is being able to be part of this journey and helping decrease the stigma around mental health needs so that more people feel comfortable seeking support.

I also work with a number of different other psychological issues, including substance use, trauma, self-esteem, men’s issues, anger, relationships problems, and ADHD.

    I enjoy being able to tailor my therapy style to the client’s personality and individualized needs, and my philosophy of care centers around the recognition that every person has unique emotional circumstances, perspectives, and needs. I seek to validate their lived experiences while at the same time helping to foster positive growth and self-actualization.

    What I like most about being a psychotherapist is that I get to hear profound insight from my clients on a daily basis; perhaps more importantly, I get to watch them overcome adversity in real time, realizing their strengths along the way. That privilege is not lost on me.
